Do you wear contacts?

I wear reading glasses only, but my daughters wear glasses. They would contacts, but their health insurance will not cover them.

I wear hard contacts. It's not that bad but occasionally can get very painful (whenever ANYTHING gets stuck in them for example).

I am not sure I would be able to wear contacts myself. I don't like anything close to my eyes. Sticking my finger in my eye doesn't thrill me at all.

i wear glasses and have for about 6 years. When I first got them I really wanted contacts but now that I've gotten used to them I don't really care if I get contacts or not... if I did get them I think I'd look kinda weird anyway.

I see more people wearing prescription eyeglasses. If I needed corrective lenses to aid in my vision full-time, I would choose eyeglasses. I wouldn't have just one set. I would have a few to change when I wanted to.

I wore contacts once but that was just because I wanted dark brown eyes. Don't know what you can do about your daughter..

I have glasses that I'm supposed to wear for reading. But, unfortunately I wear them all the time. I feel it's easier than taking them off and putting them back on and all that jazz. I actually think doing this might be bad for my eyes, but I'm not too sure.

i wear contacts. when i was younger i wore thick thick glasses and everyone would make fun of me. i begged my mom for contacts and finally when i was 14 she let me get them. i have the soft ones and they are great. i usually spend about $300 for a year's supply of disposable ones. when i was younger i had the ones you have to clean every night. they are cheaper but you end up spending more money in maintainence with the cleaner, disinfectant and saline solutions. i've been wearing contacts for 15 years and i would never go back to wearing glasses on a regular basis.
